Muted Piano Man

“Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody,” says a line in Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” in which a piano player offers comfort to the lonely patrons of a run-down dive bar. Popular music is a given in all our lives, but what is it actually worth to us? Over the past year, we […]

CONTINUITY ON A LINE

“Each individual step is small and tedious in our age of globalization. However, the steps never stop moving forward, serving as statements and resistance -it’s a calm protest, a quiet rebellion. It overcomes obstacles without avoiding pursuing unforeseen destinations and a new form of society.” Michiyasu Furutani Part of the performance series Movement Research | […]
